ATLANTA, Ga. — Bookhouse Group (www.bookhouse.net) delivered a custom-published history book project to the Dallas Theater Center (www.dallastheatercenter.org) for a May debut event celebrating the regional theater’s first half-century of drama. Entitled “Staged Right – A Half Century of Passion and Performance at Dallas Theater Center,” the book weaves historic and contemporary photography with professionally written content chronicling 50 years of stage and production accomplishment for which it is renown.
“Our job has been to collaborate with and capture the creativity that is the hallmark of the Dallas Theater Center,” said Bookhouse Group founder and custom publishing expert Rob Levin. “We rarely encounter a greater challenge or a greater opportunity than to convey via images and the written word the energy exuded by a group such as this, which is accustomed to rising to every occasion and leaving a deep impression. It has been an exhilarating partnership.”
Custom publishing experts for two decades, Bookhouse Group undertakes its role in commemorating high-watermark anniversaries for local and community theaters, such as a 10-year, 25-year or 100-year observances, as a good time not only to recount a story and reinforce a vision, but also to refresh image and marketing outreach. Creating a commemorative history book with vivid writing and both archival and contemporary photography not only creates an anniversary centerpiece, but can also serve as elements needed to update web site content, marketing collateral and other external communications.
The opportunity to integrate the history’s elements into a variety of multi-media formats not only extends its reach, but also deepens its value across an institution’s development efforts. Museum quality theater histories are timeless-their relevance not limited to specific date or event-and are destined to become treasured personal possessions, fulfilling both the spirit and practicality of a commemorative investment.
For Staged Right – A Half Century of Passion and Performance, Bookhouse Group commissioned playwright and former drama critic Steve Murray. Steve’s extensive knowledge of both the artistic and business side of running a stage theater provided the book with valuable insight and sensitivity.
